United Methodist Church Resources

The United Methodist Church with the United Methodist Communications has made a significant investment in the brand of the denomination.  This has raised the positive perception of the church.  It is valuable for local churches to associate with this strong brand as well as be recognized as a part of a worldwide denomination.
